Well...this seems like it should be fought, especially for 500 bucks

A woman was traveling from Paris to the United States, when the she got an apple in-flight on the way to Minneapolis. When she got there, she was selected for random searching by US Customs.

She put the apple in her bag and planned on saving it for the next flight to get to Denver. The woman told the agent that she had just got the apple and asked if she should throw it out or eat it.

Instead she got a fine of 500 bucks.

(Crystal) Tadlock now has the choice of paying the fine or fighting the penalty in court. She told the Denver-based broadcaster KDVR she wanted to take the case to court.

"It's really unfortunate someone has to go through that and be treated like a criminal over a piece of fruit," Ms Tadlock said", according to BBC news.
